There will be a city question on the November 6 ballot regarding a change to the City Charter. If adopted, this measure would change the process of how certain businesses and restaurants obtain liquor licenses in our city. Currently, our city’s Charter prohibits businesses in a commercial area of less than seven acres from applying for a license to serve full liquor (Minneapolis differentiates between a beer and wine license from a full liquor license.)
In order for a business to pursue a full liquor license, these businesses must lobby the state legislature for an exemption to the City Charter. After obtaining an exemption, they are then required to go through the same city application process for a liquor license as businesses within seven acre commercial areas. The proposed change would eliminate the requirement for these small businesses to seek a special state exemption from our City Charter.
At its meeting on Sept. 18, Kenny Neighborhood Association passed a resolution supporting this change to the City Charter.

Tues., Oct. 16
The second draft of the 2040 Minneapolis Comprehensive Plan will be released by Sept. 29 at the latest. Ward 13 Council Member Linea Palmisano has agreed to hold discussions with each of the 7 neighborhoods she represents regarding the second draft and its recommendations.
Kenny and Armatage neighborhood associations hold their regular, monthly meetings on the same night; in order to not short change either neighborhood’s engagement or discussion, we have agreed to a combined meeting in order to allow for a thorough and unrushed discussion.
KNA will still hold its regular Board meeting on Oct. 16, but it will be in the small meeting room at ARMATAGE Park starting at 6 p.m. and then we will adjourn and move to the multipurpose room at 7:15 p.m. for the 2040 discussion.
We hope you will join us and your Armatage neighbors for this important update and discussion.
